Knee Support!

Prompt ~

unidentifiable on a stick

Copyright –Kent Bonham

The old man could hardly walk. He had exhausted the many OTC remedies. A friend took him to an osteopath. Contrary to his professional beliefs he advised, ‘the easy way out is to get a knee-transplant’.

The old man had no money to waste on doctors and asked if there was a cheaper option.

‘I could give you a few sessions of manipulative-therapy but it will only help if you use spider-silk knee support sleeves. However, you will have to make one under my tutelage’.

The old-man started collecting cobwebs using a special brush tied to a piece of stick.

  1. Hah! I love the way this story seems to work backwards. It feels like you thought of the last line first and then wove (!) the rest of it in. Often that doesn’t work, but here, it really did. Made me laugh.

  2. Such imagination. I love where you took the prompt. Collecting cobwebs is such a delicate, gentle idea. I wonder if the man will still be alive before he has all he needs though. Sometimes it’s better to spend the money.

I love arguments
